Telstra Joins the Call for Cloud Security for Businesses with Elastica
Research has shown that over 76 per cent of Australian and New Zealand employees are using between one to five unapproved applications in their laptops and mobile devices for their work. This phenomenon only shows the prevalence of shadow IT, or IT solutions that employees use without proper approval from their superiors. This practice, while beneficial for most employees because it gives them the freedom to use their preferred applications for doing their work, can also pose security threats that can put a business in jeopardy. Fortunately, the growing concern with shadow IT can now be abated with the new partnership between Telstra and US cloud security firm Elastica, aiming to provide additional protection among businesses.
